A complete review of Coral Colours Cosmetics

Hi guys!

I have recently started understanding and using make-up way more than I ever did. (And no, it's not to cover the hideousness the newly arrived acne is causing. Ugh!) I have been giving a lot of new brands a fair chance and not many have stolen my heart the way Coral Colours has! This is not a paid review, so you can imagine how much I must love these products to actually spend time writing about it. Coral Colours is an Australian brand of cosmetics that was first launched in 1989. 


Essentially, they are a group of 3 brands - Om SHE Aromatherapy, Coral Colours Cosmetics and Natural Glamour. They support their local pharmacies all around Australia and NZ, and Om SHE Aromatherapy is also sold in North America, Europe and the UK. They are the epitome of budget beauty and well, now you can see why I have so closely associated myself with this amazing brand. Another major reason I support them is because they are absolutely cruelty free! So, that's like a lot of items checked off the HOTH Collab list and of course, it's make-up! You already know how big a make-up junkie I am!


Coral Colours Cosmetics

  • Strobing Palette in Stargazer 

I'd like to start with my favourite product from this range - The Strobing Palette in Stargazer. This palette looks so pretty that I could spend hours just looking at it. They have another palette called Heavenly, but for me, it had to be this. This has unicorn colors, guys! Anyway, I use this as an eye shadow, as blush and as highlighter. The colors are shimmery and very light shades of pink, purple, yellow tones. The pigmentation is shockingly amazing! I like the versatility of this palette and I often use it for different purposes. It's also very well-packed and so compact. This product gets a big thumbs up from me!
Price: $9.95

  • Matte Lipstick in Blush

This is yet another product from this range that I am in love with! I am a bit of a lipstick hoarder and if you take a look at this one you'll know that it's soooo me! The pop of color this shade brings to the table is definitely that much needed brightness in my life right now. It's a very bubble-gummy pink that I usually prefer over nudes or darker shades. The quality of this lipstick is as good as any MAC or Bobbi Brown and it's complete value for money! It's also very highly pigmented, so you can decide how much of the product you want on your lips. Overall, this particular lipstick is a great addition to my collection.

    • Lavish Lashes Argan Oil Mascara

      My everyday make-up routine ends with a mascara since I don't normally do anything else to my eyes. This particular mascara is infused with argan oil, which, as we all know really helps keep your hair or skin healthy. I wouldn't say it's one of the best mascaras I have used, but it's for sure a brand I can trust and use on a daily basis. It's so easy to use, doesn't smudge and you can effortlessly do your eyes with this one. The packaging, again, is bomb!
      Price: $9.95

      • Highlight & Contour Palette
      I don't do a lot of contouring since I am very new to this concept, however, I like to highlight my cheekbones, nose and cupid's bow before I set foot out of the house to party! This palette has 4 shades of product - 2 for highlighting and 2 for contouring. I like how compact this palette is and it's got very light pigmentation, so you can use a lot a product and not worry about messing up.
      Price: $9.95

      Om SHE Aromatherapy

        • Argan Oil Primer
          Primers are a must for me when I do a full face of make-up. While I love my Miss Claire primer to bits, this one from Om SHE Aromatherapy is not too bad. It has a very herbal fragrance and doesn't harm the skin at all. In fact, it helps your skin because of the argan oil present in it. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to even out my pores the way my Miss Claire primer does. I feel like this would act more like a moisturizer or a day cream. But overall, it's a good base for your make-up since it's paraben free.
          Price: $19.95

            • Gel Eye Liner
              Gel Liners are the best if you want to do like a smokey eye look. The design of this product is fascinating - you can use the lid of this product to close the eye liner as well as a handle for the brush. It's very easy to use, the product doesn't smudge and I like the idea of using a gel liner. Normally, even after a Zumba class this eye liner doesn't budge.

              Natural Glamour

              • Pressed Bronzer in Natural Glow
              Now I don't normally do bronzers, but the packaging of this one has made me try this particular pressed bronzer. I use this as a blush and it is stunning! The color is warm toned and has a bit of a sparkle which really brings out your cheekbones. It blends very easily with my skin. It comes with a bronzer brush, which is amazing because you can just use that! Overall, the bronzer gets a big heart!
              Price: $9.95
              You can buy it here.

              If you have noticed, most of the products cost less than $10 and for the quality of these products, that's a steal! I am usually apprehensive about brands that are not very popular, but Coral Colours has caught me by surprise. If you are thinking of buying some new make-up and don't wanna spend a whole lot, then you know where you can shop from!

              Love,
